OK, I misread the title of the film at the Trylon. Then I wondered how a martini could be defeated. When consumed it really goes to work. Like Obi Wan, a martini could say "If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."

You stated that the Artists' Quarter reopens later this year (in August?) under the Dakota’s management - this is not quite the case - the old Arists' Quareter location will be remodeled and used to open a new music venue, but it will not be the Artists' Quarter.

No member of the clergy is compelled by the state to perform any marriage. They can refuse requests for any reason - no matter how ludicrous.
